mentoring

i have a friend in auckland who has structured his business to work 4 longer days a week, so he can take fridays off to mentor a young man… not just talk, but actually teach him how to work, & do some small projects together.  (my friend is a builder).

the interesting thing is that the young dude didn’t actually want to be mentored… so it took a bit of persistence to start that friendship.

jesus thought mentoring was important, so he structured his ‘business’ around that goal.

that’s my goal for this year.  to be honest i actually suck at mentoring, because i have never been mentored.  my relationship with christian leadership as a teenager was more like they wanted to cast demons out of  me…

anyways, that’s my goal…  mentoring.  just baby steps right now.  i win some, i lose some.
